Check Out James Corden and Kevin Bacon's Kooky Ad for Bacon Cologne

"Does it smell like you or smell like bacon?"

I Love Dick star Kevin Bacon (who is not Denis Leary) stopped by The Late Late Show to premiere a commercial for a different new product: Bacon Cologne, a fragrance that might smell like Kevin Bacon or might smell like bacon. No one's really sure. Does Kevin Bacon smell like bacon? Who can say. I suppose Kyra Sedgwick could confirm, but she hasn't, as far as I know.

Anyway, James Corden's timing on this wackadoodle perfume commercial is not great, since it will be overshadowed by the viral Spike Jonze-directed ad for Kenzo fragrance. That ad, which is more like a (terrific) music video than a commercial, features The Leftovers star Margaret Qualley doing an insane dance routine and shooting lasers out of her hands. Check it out below. Who did it better?
